How do I find the definition of a word?
The JCC Libraries have numerous dictionaries and thesauri in print. You can also find dictionaries online:
From the JCC Library Homepage (link below) go to Databases by Title under SEARCH COLLECTIONS. You will find the Oxford English Dictionary under the letter "O". If you are off-campus you will need your JCC Student ID and password to access the database.
The JCC Internet Sources Libguide (on the JCC Library Homepage under Libguides) contains a "Dictionaries" page (link below). Dictionary.com or Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary are both good online dictionaries.
Hope this helps, please contact us again if you need further help.
